  9. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  10. Speaking for myself I was given a lot of responsibility, which I thrived on. However, I know many of the other interns were also really hands on with some super interesting and important projects.

  11. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

  15. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  16. They have been running placements here for many years now and every year there's a constant feedback loop with the steering committee in order to refine the process. You can really tell!

    Subsidised/Company Gym

    9/10

  21. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  22. If you make the most of your year, picking up skills throughout, making connections within your team and beyond, I'd say you'd have a really good shot at coming back into the SAP or partner ecosystem (and they have some really good opportunities)

    9/10

  23. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  24. Yes, you will make some really great friends throughout the experience.

    9/10
